Impact of GST on Gold Rate in Kanpur
Implementing GST has increased the gold rate in Kanpur by around 0.75% compared to the pre-GST era (which included VAT and customs duty).
If you bought physical gold in the pre-GST regime, you had to pay the following: - 1.2% VAT (Value Added Tax) - 1% customs duty - 10% gold import duty
When you calculate and value it together, the total taxes and duties paid by a buyer would be pegged at around 12.2%.
In the new GST regime, this is what the gold rate will include: - 3% GST - 12.5% import duty - 2.5% Agriculture Infrastructure and Development Cess (AIDC) - Social Welfare Surcharge - 10% of Customs Duty
With the implementation of GST, the gold rate has increased. This means you have to pay extra for gold when you buy it now.

How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Kanpur?
The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), a government body, certifies the purity of gold in Kanpur. Their certification process of gold purity is called hallmarking. Every jewellery store in Kanpur can sell only hallmarked gold.
24-karat gold is the purest form of gold available. Its gold purity is 99.9%. Pure gold is soft, so it usually can’t be used to create intricate jewellery designs. That’s why certain other metals and alloys are mixed with pure gold to make them harder.
BIS has created specific benchmarks for hallmarked physical gold, depending upon the percentage of pure gold used. So, the next time you visit a jewellery store to buy gold ornaments or gold coins/bars/biscuits, you should check the BIS hallmark of gold purity. The three different purity levels or grades of gold are: - 22K 916 signifies 22-karat gold. The percentage of pure gold in it is 91.6%. - 18K 750 signifies 18-karat gold. The percentage of pure gold in it is 75%. - 14K 585 signifies 14-karat gold. The percentage of pure gold in it is 58.5%.
However, in 2021, an amendment in the Indian Standard on Gold Hallmarking I.S. 1417:2016 was introduced. They are 24-karat, 23-karat, and 20-karat gold purity grades.

Things to Consider Before Buying Gold in Kanpur
When buying gold in Kanpur, there are four critical factors to consider.
BIS Mark or BIS Logo
Any gold jewellery hallmarked by the BIS will display the BIS logo, signifying that its purity has been confirmed in one of its authorised laboratories. The BIS is the only organisation in India that the government has authorised to hallmark gold items of any kind to help ensure their purity.
Gold’s Karat and Fineness
There are six categories, and these are as follows: - 24-karat - 23-karat - 22-karat - 20-karat - 18-karat - 14-karat
Jewellery with a fineness number and the BIS hallmark has been certified by BIS to be of the level of purity or fineness that is embossed on it. Inspect the gold you buy to ensure it is the desired karat and fineness.
Hallmarking or Assaying Centre’s Number or Mark
It is required by BIS that any laboratory inspecting gold jewellery to check its purity must place its logo on the piece. Only licensed laboratories can check gold purity. You can check if BIS licenses a hallmarking centre by visiting their website.
Kanpur Jewellery Store’s Identification Mark
Additionally, the jewellery store where you purchase your gold jewellery will mark it with its identification. This logo may belong to a jeweller or jewellery producer who has earned BIS certification. So, the next time you buy gold ornaments or coins/biscuits/bars from a jewellery shop in Kanpur, don't miss out on checking these factors.

How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Kanpur?

Gold is valuable only when it is pure. There are instances where customers are duped with impure gold. Hence, confirming the purity of gold is crucial.

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is a government authority that certifies the purity of gold. According to BIS, the following factors are to be kept in mind when buying gold.

  1. BIS Mark

    Jewellery hallmarked by BIS will have a BIS logo on it. Remember that since BIS is the only authorized laboratory in India for gold certification.

  2. Karat

    Karat is a scale to gauge gold's purity. While 24 karat gold is the purest, it is too soft for use. Hence, other metals are added and the gold available in the market is often 22 Karat.

  3. Jewellers Identification Mark

    The gold you buy should also carry an identification mark by an authorized jeweller. This helps ensure the gold is from a credible source. The mark can also be helpful in the case of disputes.
